Continued Season's Greetings


Here is a very simple card you could mass produce that I made with the StampTV kit Season's Greetings.  I love this reindeer silhouette! Repeat the image by stamping off twice.  This technique is great not only for adding multiple shades but also movement, now they are prancing!  Ink is the new Gina K. Charcoal Brown.  The touch of gray in this brown ink makes it such a versatile, unique neutral.  I used Pure Luxury In the Navy cardstock and the coordinating ink for the sentiment.  Add a little red colored pearl for his nose! The repeating pearls emphasize the sentiment and tie in the red embellishment. Some wispy white organdy from the kit adds softness to the card.  I folded up the white mat's corner just a touch to add a little more interest.

How's everyone doing on their holiday cardmaking?  Sifting through my basket yesterday I was pretty pleased with how many I have already just for making samples for our last few releases!  Yeah!

Do you know we have a new release coming up in just a few short weeks?  I have a new set I am so excited about, that I hinted about on Facebook, oh, maybe a month or two ago now, lol!  I couldn't be more pleased with the illustrations and hope you'll love this as much as I do. :)

Hugs!!

Sharyn, it contains one of my favorite illustrations ever. Ever. And that something is something I have never drawn before :)

Wonderful design. I am inspired and since I am way behind in my holiday cards I might just try this one to play catch up and still have a nice design. Thanks for sharing your talents again!

Very cool, Hey, please say a little prayer for my DIL, Rach that you met when we had lunch in Round Rock 3 years ago. She just had her 6th surgery on her rt hand after a fall from atic last January. (she has also had 2 surgery on left hand and at least one more)

Melanie said...

Yes, Lagene, I will pray for successful surgery! Bless her heart to still be dealing with that :(

Fabulous technique using this image!! The pearls, ribbon/bow, and curled up corner are the perfect finishing touches on this one!

Love this one. It is just beautiful. Looks like the deer is going to take off to the sky in a few more steps. Just gorgeous
